Mornings can be tough. Especially Mondays.

On top of early mornings, there's the dreaded commute so many people face. And for many parents, there's the added pain of the school drop-off line (uggghhhh).

But at an Arkansas elementary school, the assistant principal is making every morning better with his lyrical skillz and sweet dance moves.

KOLR10 and Ozarks Local News uploaded a video to their Facebook page showing elementary school assistant principal Gary Logan starting students' — and parents' — days on the right foot.

Whether he's singing songs from "Frozen"...

...or doing the Whip and Nae Nae...

...Logan's Monday morning game is on point. And it's not just Mondays. Nope. He does this every morning.

"It makes their day, and it makes mine to see them smilin' and happy!" he said.

Judging from his students' reactions, Logan is definitely making kids happy.

Feeling it ... feeling it ...

Felt it.

"I don't do bad days," Logan said. "Every day's a good day."

And that's why we all need a Mr. Logan in our lives.

You can watch his awesome morning routine. If this doesn't put a smile on your face, I'm not sure what will!

When schools closed early in the spring, the entire country was thrown for a loop. Parents had to figure out what to do with their kids. Teachers had to figure out how to teach students at home. Kids had to figure out how to navigate a totally new routine that was being created and altered in real time.

For many families, it was a big honking mess—one that many really don't want to repeat in the fall.

But at the same time, the U.S. hasn't gotten a handle on the coronavirus pandemic. As states have begun reopening—several of them too early, according to public health officials—COVID-19 cases have risen to the point where we now have more cases per day than we did during the height of the outbreak in the spring. And yet President Trump is making a huge push to get schools to reopen fully in the fall, even threatening to possibly remove funding if they don't.

It's worth pointing out that Denmark and Norway had 10 and 11 new cases yesterday. Sweden and Germany had around 300 each. The U.S. had 55,000. (And no, that's not because we're testing thousands of times more people than those countries are.)

The president of the country's largest teacher's union had something to say about Trump's push to reopen schools. Lily Eskelsen Garcia says that schools do need to reopen, but they need to be able to reopen safely—with measures that will help keep both students and teachers from spreading the virus and making the pandemic worse. (Trump has also criticized the CDCs "very tough & expensive guidelines" for reopening schools.)
